    No...."dissing" will get you killed. Here's a gun safety idea, keep guns out of the hands of people with a marked propensity for violence.

    well guys and gals, I think the guy was wrong, dead wrong but lets understand!
    1) this is a very high crime area.
    2) the apartment dweller's truck Or car was just stolen like 2 nights prior to this.
    3) the shootie was a middle teen aged black guy-- main culprits in almost every situation, especially in this area.
    4) gang members and violence is heavy here.
    Now that does not justify this shooting by any means but people that live in these areas are afraid to go out of their homes about anytime day or night.
    about a week ago local news had video of a young black male teen being dropped off from a Jeep in the parking lot of an apartment building and him randomly shooting what appeared to be a AK and shot like 30 plus rounds into the building, got back in the jeep and drove off---OH by the way he did the same thing two nights prior to this.
    this was about 2 miles from the address where the guy shoots other guy at front door !

    Yep. The houses and apartments are address labeled. Does no good when folks keep their noses buried in their cell phone watching the GPS or picking out a rap song.

    Glad I don't live in SW Atlanta.
    Even at midnight you shouldn't be shot for knocking on the wrong door.
    The guy in the apartment never should have opened the door.
    Now two lives are ruined; not counting the family members.

    Mr. Twain had a very appropriate saying about such things. “The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog.”

    Crazy story indeed! This is as bad as the guy shooting an amazon guy over a parking spot. Never should have gotten that far! Gives us all a bad name!

    This morning news from Atlanta (metro area) revealed if i remember correctly, 7 shootings, 3 or 4 were dead, the others in the hospital and if i remember 3 of the shooties were police?
    they said yesterday that the GBI (which investigates all police shootings) had 26 investigatiosn so far THIS year.
    now that is just Police involved shootings!
    one was a rapper that was trying to get his life turned around according to his MOM, course she didn't mention or was asked IF he was trying to get his life turned around why was he carrying an illegal firearm and pointing it at police.
    move over Chicago.

    If you knock on my door after dark, let alone after midnight,
    you had better know the 'secret knock'.
    Either that or be wearing a Santa suit and carrying a brand new
    guitar with my name on it.
    What kind of an idiot goes around knocking on doors after midnight?
    Oh.............oh..............I know.
    The dead kind.
    Remember:
    Life is short.
    Make sure you spend as much time as possible
    on the internet arguing with strangers about politics.

    I don't think the vast majority of law enforcement, judges, juries are going to see knocking on someones door as life threatening to the residents, nor allow for legal self defense of a deadly nature.
    Now if they are kicking in or have entered the abode then that's a different level of threat.
    there have been quite a few times where as a Fireman we were called to a resident because of smoke coming from it to only find the resident passed out on the couch from alcohol and had been cooking on the stove.
    not exactly the best feeling ,but you just pound on the door and try to get them awake before you force the door to extinguish the fire.
    of course the police are sill many minutes away at that time.
    everything that goes bump-knock in the night is not always bad.
